6 years/$27 million/$4.5 million cap #
Staal wants $3.5-$4 million in a 4 year deal.
Give up 3 arbitration years and 2 group III years. 6 years.
I remember when the Rangers signed Brian Leetch to a 7 year deal worth $20 million in the summer of 1992 after he won his first Norris. All of my Ranger friends thought the Rangers were crazy giving Leetch that type of contract. I liked the deal.
18 years later. 1 less year and $7 million more for the best defenseman the Rangers have produced since Leetch. Pay him.
The Rangers have room to sign it today. None of the Staal has to wait for the Rangers to get their house in order from Larry Brooks ********.
Paul Krepelka has solicited offer sheet from other teams and it takes just one team to offer sheet the player. Sather told Gross that Krepelka has sought offers for his clients. I read one of Andy Strickland's blogs where he mentioned Krepelka was solicited offer sheets for Staal.
